Pantry Drawers

Does anyone know how much weight each individual pantry drawer is rated to hold? I sure wouldn't want to over load them.

Thanks
Pat

I think lots - we have two of them loaded with canned goods, and they do fine. If you haven't rigged a way to lock them down, you might consider it. They tend to slide in and out on travel and damage the door - We did this using Home Depot brakets in brushed nickel:

I need to do something with our Pantry drawers too to keep them from moving when are traveling.
We head north in a couple of weeks, guess I need to get off my butt and get it done.

I copied Brad's mod, they are fine with the slide latches. Only problem I had is that Home Depot or lowes in Arizona only carried 3" & I wanted 4" similar to Brads. I found them online and installed them on all drawers.

Although AA's solution is much nicer (but more work to this lazy guy !)

After 3 tries to get the dealer to fix ours, I got an 8 foot long 1x2 that I cut angles on the end such that it wedged behind the cabinet edges.

Goes from top left behind the top latch to bottom right with the left sides trimmed at the proper angles...

I picked out a 'bad' piece of white pine that was bowed a bit and this actually helped by bowing it toward the drawers to take up the extra room

store it under the sofa when we stop.

When I was in for my annual at the factory after the 2014 Rally, they put 2 straps on that crossed in an X and had snap locks. They work great! Removed my 1x4...looks great!

We dropped by a foam distributer and got some two inch thick scrap from them for free. It measures two inches thick by four inches wide and was 8 foot long. We cut it to length.
Since it was scrap, the cost was zero.
We stick it in front of the drawers as we close the door for travel. We also place a pillow (from the sofa) in front of the door between it and the island.
No problems with this arrangement so far.
The foam rolls up and stashes in the hall closet when we are set up.
Hope that helps.

Safe travels
George and Kay

Bought aa 1x3 piece of poplar and cut it to fit the opening, less 3/4 inch. Put velcro on each end and pieces inside the door frame. As there is more space at the top than at the bottom, we just lift the board up behind the top frame and slip it into the frame and down to the velcro. As some one suggested a while ago in the other forum, we used chair leg pads for each drawer on the back of the board. Works great, and is inexpensive and easy to make and install.

We purchased magnets from Wal-Mart and mounted them to the back of the drawers. Now the drawers snap shut, and so far have not come open.

Back to the weight. they use a cheap slide they should be rated for 50lbs. If one fails go to one of the big box stores and get a knapp voight or an accuride slide they are rated for 75/100 lbs. a lott better slide and they will replace the rw slide

While the pantry may be able to hold a lot the guys who just replaced the springs on the wheels on that side said we have to be careful how much you load in the cabinets because that side is already heavy due to the refrigerator and in our case a washer dryer too. We have the same locks on our pantry doors as Adam and they function very well as long I as I don't forget to check the locks! I feel that at some point in the future a different brand of springs will be going on our unit.

Can we get pictures of the magnets idea ? I'm really liking that.

Thanks for all your help. DH looked at all the ideas and went out and bought a painters adjustable pole he put that in front of the drawers with felt pads on center of each drawer. The pole stores nicely in the washer dryer closet. I also put most of my can goods in the closet by the entrance door. Hope that distributes the weight a little more

You just mount the magnet to the bottom rear edge of the drawer, and the metal plate to the rear wall. You can remove the drawer to mount the magnet. Currently our trailer is in storage, so I am sorry for no pictures
